Program Description

ResearchGate’s recent legal woes regarding publishing giants like Elsevier and American Chemical Society have caught the attention of academic authors, giving open access champions a unique opportunity to engage with University researchers and scientists.

The workshop also entails a discussion of the perks of participating in both ResearchGate and non-commercial repositories by exploring how the services complement one another.

Attendees of this presentation will come away with ideas for designing their own authors’ rights training, complete with active learning and hands-on activities that will engage faculty and researchers from a variety of disciplines. After the presentation, attendees will be better prepared to answer author questions such as, “Why use the university’s repository when I have ResearchGate”?
